But how do you choose coconut oil that’s good for your body and hair and for the world around you? Well, the best bet is to go organic!
365 Everyday Value Organic Coconut Oil
This is from the Whole Foods private label and gives you a very good value for money proposition.
The jar is glass, which is good and we think it’s a great vegan substitute when you want to bake or cook with it.

Dr Bronner’s Regenerative Organic Coconut Oil
We love this family-run business, and they make super products that also support their workers through fair trade agreements.
This is great for cooking thanks to a high smoke point and it’s also an excellent moisturizer!

NOW Foods Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
You will find that this cold-pressed and unrefined coconut oil product is really super nutritious. This is also a certified organic coconut oil.
We also found it to be very kind on the hair though it’s not always as easy to work with as some of the other oils in our tests.
We will definitely be buying this cold-pressed coconut oil brand again.

Trader Joe’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Packets
We don’t think single-serving packets are always particularly eco-conscious, but we do recognize the need people have for portability.
If you want something that you can just slip in your bag and take anywhere then you might want to consider these packets.

Nutiva Organic Liquid Coconut Oil
There’s no doubt in our minds that if you want to cook with coconut oil, the easiest way to do it is with a bottle of liquid coconut oil.
Then it pours like olive oil or sesame oil and you can easily make what you want from it. Food grade coconut oil adds a proper coconut flavor to dishes and that makes this one of the best coconut oils to have around your kitchen.
If you want to add coconut oil to a smoothie or a salad, it really is the only way to go to ensure that you mix it up rather than overwhelming things. You can also pair it with some fair trade chocolate if you feel a little decadence is in order.
